• rF2 Forward: StockCars - An Interview with Marcel



    Now that Luminis’ Studio 397 has partnered with ISI and is tasked with the future development of rFactor 2, there are a lot of questions sim racers have regarding what is going to happen. I was able to discuss with Marcel Offermans, Managing Director at Studio 397 some details to the future of the rFactor 2 StockCars and IndyCars modules.

      Thanks guod and Marcel (again!), that's a very extensive interview and well worth a read, some bits noteworthy that caught my eye:

      Doug: Could you name some improvements Studio397 plans specifically for oval track racing that haven’t been announced before?
      Marcel: One thing we are considering is an improved spotter
      .


      Reiza have recently added a very good Spotter to their Sim and it's one of the many items that ISI originally planned some time ago, I've always dreamed of having a better Spotter/Chief Engineer banging on in my ears (yes I know there's some work done by others but I've not given them a proper go)

      Doug: Regarding the JSONs and other embedded control files, can we expect to see more and more of these added to the user interface? Using Notepad just to set some basic playing functionality seems counter to the Steam automation.
      Marcel: Yes


      Gimme a HALLELUJAH! One thing I detest about todays Sims (that's all of them!) is the constant need to faff about in Notepad to change one setting that could easily be in game in the UI, this is 2016 not 1996 so I'm glad Studio397 are looking into this, just hope it includes everything worth while as we really shouldn't be using notepad for anything IMO.

      I like especially "that would spoil the surprise if we said exactly what!"

      A poper working oval FCY can be tunned and used on road courses too and make it even better. Win-win even for those that don't like ovals

    Hi dp,

    even though I cannot answer your question, I'd like to point out that this forum has been more and more quiet since the steam forum

    Matchmaking Unavailable

    That has been the case for some time now.
    Casual RF2 multi-player has been almost non-existent from the 'get-go'...unless you subscribe to a league
